VfB Stuttgart vs Bayern Munich
2018/19 German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 1st September 2018
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes- Benz Arena (Stuttgart).
The Mercedes Benz Arena will have quite an atmosphere attached to it on early Saturday evening when German champions Bayern Munich come to visit and this should be quite a game.
Stuttgart did not get off to a good start and lost last weekend at Mainz by 1-0 and now they are at home they have the toughest team in the league to play, but it is clear that Stuttgart will want to give a good performance in front of their home fans.
Bayern Munich struggled for long periods before their quality finally showed last weekend and they were able to beat Hoffenheim 3-1. Forward Thomas Muller scored and that was important for the German legend who had a quiet World Cup this summer in Russia.
Bayern are big odds on to win this game and are being quoted as low as 2/7 to win this. This could be unfair given that they are away, but it is true that they have the quality to score a few goals in this game.

VfB Stuttgart vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
Bayern have a great record here but what is interesting is that the goal margins are usually very tight so they are only winning by 1 goal. This is why our main bet will be to take Stuttgart on the handicap.
We will also back the anytime goal scorer market. This will be a game that Bayern will dominate with possession and Stuttgart will try to concentrate and defend deep and keep the score low for as long as possible.
